5 Gift Ideas for Book Lovers

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

Cozy Chicks blog readers have a lot in common – we appreciate the simple things inlife, we love tales with a touch of romance, we don't want our murder mysteries too grizzly, and we’re all busy. But we know the importance of making time for reading. It’s in our blood. And we tend to gravitate toward other readers.

So for that book lover on your list, here are a few gift ideas.

I can't offer you a review of any of these fun gifts, because they're all on my wishlist. My 'plot' is to direct certain family/friends to this post and hope they get a 'clue'.

What book related present is on your list?

I have the mighty bright and love it! Don't use it as much anymore because we got a new headboard that has built in lights so my husband can sleep and I can read!! Mostly I want books! I've got a few on my list but I've been working through Maggie Sefton's series and haven't read anything else in a few weeks :)

I don't ask for books or book related items since DH seems to think I have plenty of books and book related items. He's so silly.

I do plan on getting the calendar for the holiday exchange we hold on the Booktalk message thread we have on Weight Watchers message boards.

I also have two long-standing subscriptions with one of my favorite indy mystery bookshops, High Crimes. My sister and my dad each get a new mystery each month for the following year. I've done this for the last four or five years. It may be slightly selfish, since I get to read the books when they both finish.

Books, whether they are real books or the digital variety, make for excellent Christmas gifts! Fortunately my whole family do not mind giving (or receiving!) books as gifts.

Great wishes everyone. And Bronwyn thanks for the tip about The Book Report. I'm off to discover.

I never ask for books or bookrelated stuff, I buy it myself the moment it catches my eye ;) That way I am sure: a: to have it, b: it is the right one.

But I do like those pictures, especially the book stand pillow.
